About Don Tollefson
I reside in Venice and I'm referred to as a neighborhood developer. When I purchased the property in 1979, my friends thought I was crazy. Back then, Venice was a high crime, blighted area with little prospect of improvement. Now, everyone says I'm brilliant!. The truth is, I was simply lucky. The one thing I've learned over the years is if you have your choice between smart and lucky, take lucky.
Don Tollefson purchased this House in 1987
Why Don Tollefson chose Venice
I purchased this property because it was the only property I could afford at the time. Prices were beginning to rise in Venice, but for some reason this property was on the market at what I considered an affordable time. Bottom line? Dumb luck! If I had to do it over again I certainly would. I've certainly enjoyed this property.
What makes this House unique
Location. It's a short walk to Abbot Kinney where real estate prices are exceeding those in parts of Beverly Hills.

A Dream Come True!
This property was an absolutely perfect fit for my needs! I adored the private yard with ample space to stretch out, relax, or enjoy a meal at the lovely patio setup. The kitchen was equipped with everything I needed to prepare meals. The bed was incredibly large and comfortable - perfect for resting after a long day. The bathroom was very clean and had a fun skylight! The host did a beautiful job of leaving comprehensive instruction for the rental, as well as clearly labeling all the switches and remotes. The location was one of my favourite parts. Truly steps away from some of the best restaurants and shopping around! The neighbourhood was safe and well kept, which is always an important factor for me. The beach is just 10 minute walk away as well! If you are traveling alone or with a friend/partner, this is the BEST place to stay in Venice! I will be back!
Thanks Kendra for taking the time to write a wonderful review. It's tremendously helpful for prospective vacationers to receive feedback from prior vacationers. Regarding the location being great? I couldn't agree more. Come again soon.
Small but comfortable
This is a small efficiency bu everything was of good quality and the shower was great. Parking is not an issue.
Thanks Eric for taking the time to submit a review. I look forward to your return some day.
Perfect for a couple. Small but just enough. Amazing location!
Marcello, thank you and your wife for a perfect guest review.
Wonderful stay, would definitely book again!
We had a fantastic stay at the Hideaway! The property was recently renovated and the interior layout is really nice and perfectly equipped with new appliances. It's a great layout for a solo person or a couple!
All of the conveniences of home plus location!
This was a great place. It had everything my husband and I needed and more! the location was perfect, close to all of the trendy spots on Abbott Kinney but away from the noise. the patio area was perfect for enjoying our morning coffee, evening libations or meals. We would highly recommend this private "Hideaway".
Thanks Michelle for a wonderful review. I agree, this is almost a perfect place for a vacation rental. It has the proximity to Abbot Kinney Boulevard that my other vacation rentals have, but since it is set back, it does not experience the noise of Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Thank you so much for taking the time .
Great location in Venice, short walking distance to restaurants and shopping, easy walk to the beach, lots of amenities...all make for a very comfortable stay. Plenty of storage for a short or long stay. Don was very accommodating and quick to respond. We look forward to returning. Thanks Don!
Thanks for taking the time to write a guest review and mentioning that I am accommodating and quick to respond. I've had to give up my hobby of traveling to be so accommodating so when someone let's me know they appreciate it, I appreciate it too. Thanks, Don
